Ahhh, romance! I’m a sucker for a good boy-meets-girl story and I love a happy ending, so I’d love to know,
What was the most romantic thing that ever happened to you?
My story goes like this: In February, 1995, I was a 27yo writer, living in Oklahoma, with this new computer that had fancy new thing on it called a modem! I was on America Online and stumbled across a singles bulletin board. I answered a very funny posting and thought nothing of it. But a couple of days later, a young man in Massachusetts replied to me. We struck up a conversation of emails that lasted nine months. In September 1995, I agreed to fly to Boston to meet him face to face. Scariest thing I ever did. But when I met him, I knew. Then I met his mother, and I really knew. By Thankgiving, we had plans and I was moving to Boston to be with him. By Christmas we were in love. By the end of January of 1996, we were engaged. Now? We’ve been married 16 years and have five kids. My story is my favorite, and I skipped all the super romantic parts for the sake of time (and there were a LOT!)
So tell me yours! I’d love to hear it!
